Review of School Admission Criteria

Review of School Admission Criteria

The school is proposing to make changes to it’s admission criteria for 2020/21 and as such we need to publish the proposed changes for 6 weeks (The period will end on 26th December 2018.)  The proposal is in response to a recommendation from the Department for Education (issued in August 2018.)

 

Our current criteria are as follows:

1. Children in Public Care – Looked After Children.

2. Children who have a brother or sister at the school at the time they are due to start in September.  This includes full, half or step brothers and sisters, adopted and foster brothers and sisters who are living at the same address and who are part of the same family unit.

3. Children with a parent /guardian / carer who *regularly worships at St Oswald’s Church.  The application must be supported by a letter from the Parish Vicar.

4. Children with a parent /guardian / carer who *regularly worships at another church in Churches together in Britain and Ireland.”

5. Children living closest to St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School (using the methodology of Measurement used by the Local Authority).

 

We are proposing the following.

1. Children in Public Care – Looked After Children.

2. Children who appear [to the Admissions Authority of the school] to have been in state care outside of England and ceased to be in state care because they were adopted. A child is regarded as having been in state care in a place outside of England if they were accommodated by a public authority, a religious organisation or any other provider of care whose sole purpose is to benefit society. Applications must be supported with appropriate evidence that the child has been adopted from state care.

3. Children who have a brother or sister at the school at the time they are due to start in September.  This includes full, half or step brothers and sisters, adopted and foster brothers and sisters who are living at the same address and who are part of the same family unit.

4. Children with a parent /guardian / carer who *regularly worships at St Oswald’s Church.  The application must be supported by a letter from the Parish Vicar.

5. Children with a parent /guardian / carer who *regularly worships at another church in Churches together in Britain and Ireland.”

6. Children living closest to St Oswald’s Church of England Primary School (using the methodology of Measurement used by the Local Authority).
